Sure. I just thought it's a simple problem and I could fix it as you
suggested in v2. Since I'm not a careful man, I wish you could keep
on commenting my v2 patch.

Thanks for your help in this patch again.

I think you are busy with other stuff these days. I'm sorry to disturb

Another problem. Someone <markus.heininger at online.de> asked:

"UBIFS: Is it possible to get the compressed size of a file?"

I think it's an interesting problem. Actually we used to separate an UBI
device into several volumes for space management reason. So could we
realize the compressed size getting mechanism and import *quota* to UBIFS
